Google Chrome has a built-in Flash Player, and ever since the new update causes a sound glitch to happen. Before the update, it never occurred, yet it's the SAME file. Honest. Newgrounds has also noted other problems with the new Chrome update regarding Flash:
So... you might want to use a different browser until Google fixes this, unless they're too busy figuring out what the hell to do with G+ now.

EDIT: Issue seems to be fixed now. I did nothing.

Mind-bending, Space-rending, and Completely Innocent Creature's Life-ending.

In this negative-space puzzle game, you'll drag around holes, fall through walls, and bring myriads of miniature Monsters to madness.

Say you sadistically hunger for more levels, or you just detest the levels I've made. That's fine, you can play negative-space puzzles created by other Newgroundians! And you too, can make your own.

Use the Level Creator to design your very own puzzles, and share them with a cold uncaring world. More Monsters to torture, for the good of everyone else!

Think outside the box, fellow monsters.

Excuse my french but...

This game was hard as fuck lol. I def used that walkthrough and i am not ashamed to say it. Learning the mechanics is kinda tricky. Kudos for putting out something original.

Oh don't worry about needing help along the way, I mean,
I even encouraged people to use their Level Skips.
( Of course, they only start with one Skip and have to earn the rest. )

Thanks for the review!

This was Awesome!

It was tricky at the end,But way more fun then I though!

Nutcasenightmare responds:

I hoped that the game's steady introduction of its mechanics, and their many uses explored in depth with each following level, would build the player's skills up to tackle a satisfying series of tricky challenges, at the climatic conclusion of this mind-bending game!

... OR maybe they just save up their Level Skips, and give zero damns about the last bunch of levels.

Thanks for the review!

here we go, and yet another great game! the concept was new, and it was really hard to solve, yet i got through most of it without the walkthrough. although i just realised what this game needed: AN UNDO BUTTON. but other than that, it was great!

Nutcasenightmare responds:

Woah, an undo button?
This game's hard enough with negative space, we don't need to introduce TIME TRAVEL.

Great Puzzler

Tricky a few times~
Made me think and that makes this an awesome puzzle game!
There is only one downside and that is stricktly a personal preference: some of the levels are hard to do without a regular mouse. Laptop pads make some of the levels horribly difficult. But after grabbing a regular mouse everything was better.
8/10 for laptop users
10/10 otherwise

GeroGirl approves!

Nutcasenightmare responds:

I definitely understand - I use a mousepad too, and it's a broken one at that.
( Long story short, I thought my laptop was thirsty )

For this reason, most of the levels require no timing, and only level 'CATCH ME' requires precision with timing. And for 'CATCH ME', it's easy even with a mousepad, when you use the R key to Reset.

Thanks for the review!

Man I simply loved the music, it's sooo cool. It reminds me of Super Meat Boy music, because the instruments are combined with 8 bit effects. The puzzles are very chanllenging and I try not to use the walkthrough. It's pretty hard and that's what I like. It makes you to think, to resolve the problem, though the monsters would feel better if they didn't reach the boxes XD. Great Job! like every of your submissions, this one is very very nice.

Hard challenges, 8 bit music, squishy killable square-shaped creatures...

That IS kinda like Super Meat Boy.
